We look forward to seeing you all there! Please feel free to share the invitation!
The U.S. has invested billions of dollars to train the best military in the world, yet the unemployment rate for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans hovers around 10%, nearly 3% higher than the national average. Many U.S. Veterans are un- or underemployed, in jobs that don’t truly speak to the military skills and experiences in which they were trained. Many more have a continuing desire to serve others, and would benefit profoundly from the opportunity to do that in another capacity—one that would save lives.
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of elephants — an average of 96 every day– are being slaughtered to meet a new and extraordinary demand for ivory in China. Elephants and rhinos stand on the brink of extinction. VETPAW will provide meaningful employment to skilled post 9/11 veterans and will utilize their expertise to train and support Tanzanian anti-poaching rangers.
Your support will help us to raise funs to bring our team to Africa.
